Publisher's Summary

At last the CD audio programme is now available as a download. Do you want to lose weight? Have you tried diets and failed? Do you want a completely new approach? A gastric band is a radical, surgical operation that reduces the available space in the stomach.

Paul McKenna's hypnotic gastric band is a psychological procedure that can help to convince the unconscious mind that a gastric band has been fitted, so the body behaves exactly as if it were physically present. How does it work? The system consists of an introductory explanation and then a hypnotic trance that helps your unconscious mind and your body to believe your stomach is smaller. It will provide complete support for physical and psychological change whilst you lose weight. There's no physical surgery, no scarring and no forbidden foods. Just follow all the instructions and let Paul help you lose weight.

This download comes with a bonus Digital Booklet which explains exactly how the system works to help you achieve better results.

Paul is great! It starts to work immediately, if you just relax, breathe, and listen!

Good support

Very good presentation. I have had gastric bypass surgery, so this has helped me maintain my weight loss and also helped me to drop the last 20lbs.

Any additional comments?

Too bad this didn't come in stereo, because you miss part of the experience. Even so, it was amazing. Third day and I hardly think about eating.

Very powerful

If you could sum up Hypnotic Gastric Band in three words, what would they be?

It worked for me the first night however I didn't have a follow up CD and didn't read the book as instructed so I don't know if I was to have the surgery again and again.

What does Paul McKenna bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice brought one of the most amazing sessions I had ever had.

Gave it a try, but this is not for me.

I hope this book helps people. The audiobook should be in 2 parts, one part for the first time listener and the other part for the recommended continued listening.

creepy

I had hoped for something like I Can Make You Thin in a useable format. This isn't it. I you want to tell your body it has had surgery , that is on you. My expectations were wrong. Do what you need for you.

Hypnotic Bologna. Save your money.

Would you try another book from Paul McKenna and/or Paul McKenna?

Based on this book, I don't think it would be worth it to try any other books by McKenna.

What could Paul McKenna have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I could have been told beforehand that there was some sort of text involved and where to find it prior to purchasing the audio.

What didn’t you like about Paul McKenna’s performance?

This is a completely fraudulent concept. I guess I should have known better but it confirmed that these sorts of books are not worth it.

Download in "Enhanced" option

What did you like most about Hypnotic Gastric Band?

Other reviews have mentioned this isn't in stereo and impacts the effectiveness of the hypnosis as different voices are supposed to be heard in the left and right ear. I have overcome this by downloading into my iTunes using the Enhanced audio quality option. This is done by clicking on "expand" button in your library going to "download", in this window there is a button to the top right "audio quality", click the drop down menu for enhanced. This rectified the problem completely.I have just started this and can feel myself getting full very quickly. Will have to update on weight loss later.

Audible Version on ipad app

Excellent course as usual from Paul McKenna. Alas it does not come in the stereo which would be nice for the dual suggestions (where Paul says different things to the left and right sides of the brain). It is still ok and the suggestions will go in as one. I got this with my audible credit and consider it well worth it despite the mono audio. Download the booklet, which you need to read a couple of times before doing the "op" , to your ipad by going to the actual Audible website ( using Safari) . It is there in your library. Click on the pdf and then you can choose to download/open in ibooks, Kindle, Evernote etc

Cannot rate this highly enough.

What did you like most about Hypnotic Gastric Band?

IT WORKS! I started using this audiobook and then, seeing the results my husband joined me. Without any effort [honestly] my husband and I are gently loosing weight without feeling hungry. Our diet has changed but purely our choices, they have changed naturally, we haven't cut anything out to aid dieting and deprived ourselves.

What did you like best about this story?

People keep saying we look well and the 'diet' must be working, the hardest thing to convince people is that it is not a conscious diet change, after listening to the audiobook, the changes come naturally. Now, we never feel deprived or decide not to have a cake because it's fattening, if we want it we have it [and we do] because overall our diet is so much better and our portions are automatically under control.

Have you listened to any of Paul McKenna’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to any other of Paul McKenna's other works but if I needed help I would definitely turn to him first.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My husband is diabetic and the change in diet has caused him to discover a food which was causing him problems and his life has been improved tremendously because of this.

Any additional comments?

After a lifetime of dieting and being various weight's, it is wonderful to have the need to think about what I should and shouldn't have to eat taken away, we are eating healthily and it shows.

Incredibly effective

Would highly recommend! After just one listen, your hunger drops and the more you listen, the less hungry you feel. Wish this could be in stereo though, so that you could hear the different voices, the way they are meant to be heard!

Paul's voice is wonderfully relaxing....well worth the credit!

Working so far

I have been listening to this for a week now and can say, so far so good. I feel in tune with my body and am more aware of whether or not I am actually hungry, I have been drinking more water and feel happier in myself. I know it's early days but I feel confident and choose healthy foods instead of craving junk like I used to. Try it, you have nothing to lose.

Worked for me

What did you like most about Hypnotic Gastric Band?

I bought the audio book in January and listened to it immediately. I found that there was no real change to my portion size but there was a considerable reduction in the overall amount I ate each the day. I decided to wait 6 months to do the review and during that time I listened to the hypnosis part about once a week. I have lost just over 2 stone in that time. This weight loss has been achieved with very little effort on my part. I am aware of what I eat, but I don't count calories. I feel that the weight loss is sustainable - unlike other diets I have tried. I find that I am only interested in food if I am actually hungry and I now have very little interest in sweet food.

What does Paul McKenna bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Listening to the hypnosis is an integral part of the process. I downloaded the information sheet which was fine and I also bought the book which came with a CD of the hypnosis. I felt that I needed to do a bit more reading than the downloaded information provided. I have been pleasantly surprised that the audio book did what it said it would. Although I've listened to the hypnosis over twenty times, I've never heard the entire recording as I seem to drift in and out of awareness. This doesn't seem to have made much difference to the end result.

Any additional comments?

I have recommended this book to a number of people who have commented on my weight loss. I have been surprised by how well it has worked but have no doubt that my weight loss is solely the result of listening to the hypnosis and following the advice in the book.

This works

I tried, the I can make you thin hypnosis before this. I loved the theory behind the techniques but it did not really work for me.
This was very different. I found from the first listen, my appetite dropped right off. I no longer think about food, diets or weighing myself all the time. However I did lose two pounds in the first week. Since then I am enjoying my food, eating slowly and the *need* to snack in between meals has gone. I also seem to crave lots of healthier alternatives, such as fruit and raw veggies.
I eat what I want, when I want. I just don't each as much and my portions are smaller.
I no longer weigh myself but my clothes are looser and I feel great.
I listen to the trance once a week but would recommend following the guidelines set down when you first start the program.

Hope this helps.

Great but one flaw buying through Audible

I have previously purchased books from Paul McKenna and the intelligence one has worked for me, helping me get through some horrible exams. SO I gave this a try with my Audible credit. The hypnosis is not recorded in stereo which is needed for the dual suggestions (where Paul says different things to the left and right sides of the brain). This makes a difference to me through it should works fine anyway, for me, its annoying. The effects having it in stereo really takes me into trance whereas mono, I seem to stay detached. Otherwise I am happy enough until my book comes. I bought the book to get the stereo recording. YOU DO need to look at the download leaflet as you need to visualise the operation. DO not skip this step or the hypnosis will be less effective.

Pleasantly surprised

This seems to be working. I havent lost any weight yet but I dont seem to eat for eating's sake any more. I can now leave food on my plate when I feel full without feeling that I have to finish it. It also makes me sleep very well. Only thing I would change is that it wakes you up at the end of the session. Would rather it leave me asleep as I always listen to it in bed.
